environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to make change. so the question we have to ask ourselves, are we as adults will

one of the things that many of us here understand that the environment or what we call the climate influences outcomes but often times in public schools where decisions are made, climate and educational mandates are perceived as two opposite ends of the continuum, like when i have time and i've achieved my test scores and we've got everything buttoned up, then we'll get to the klie mallet. we've heard it from speaker after speaker, that conditions set the stage for children to leeb lean in and achieve. the good news is we can move bullying out of the front page not with more dollars but with more changes in our attitudes and our interactions. if more teachers perceive themselves to be call friendly and know the names of boys and girls in their buildings, part of it is reeducation that climate and environment and changing social norms is not secondary, it's primary and when we all embrace that then we'll begin to see the changes in the policies and the practices and we'll begin to get the results we want. we need to advocate for improving the social climates of our public schools, n

spokesperson for underprivileged children and the environment. >> hi. i'm so glad you could join me because i have an exciting story for you. a few short months ago, i suffered with inflammation, just like so many of you. the worst was in my hip. things like stairs and getting out of the car were hard for me. hiking is a passion for me; i've hiked all over the world. i've spent time in africa, hiked the copper canyon, been to the arctic, even the inca trail. but my hip got so bad, i couldn't do a basic hike anymore. i tried a lot of things, but nothing seemed to work. then i heard about nopalea. i'd love to tell you that i tried it right then and there, but i'm skeptical, so it sat on my kitchen counter until i thought, i have to try it. in about a month, the pain had diminished dramatically. eventually, i was able to plan my next hiking trip. my only regret is that i waited so long to try it. if you've suffered with inflammation or chronic pain for years, there is something that can help. that's why i'm here-- to share nopalea and more remarkable success stories with you. >> the no
